Martyn and Elaine are the perfect hosts, funny, helpful and thoughtful. The room was clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was the best. Location is good but a little of an uphill climb coming home.

We had a really lovely stay. We were made very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed breakfast. The rooms are lovely, each with a different theme. We stayed in the 'Bali' room and slept very well. Even when we got up earlier than normal for breakfast we were provided with tea, coffee, toast, cereal, fruit etc. If you love fish and chips... More

We stayed at The Hillcroft for two nights and had such a wonderful stay. We were greeted by Martin & Elaine be asked if we would like coffee and homemade cake which was such a lovely touch as we'd travelled nearly 5 hours so this was much needed. Martin is extremely knowledgable of the area and whilst enjoying our coffee... More

We have just had a lovely stay for four nights here - thanks to Paul and Elaine! Beds were great and breakfast very good - lovely fruit salad and FAB tomatoes grilled with HERBS!!!

Extended Family Trip and just the tonic we needed for a busy family. Wonderful 2 bedroom top floor nook. Highly recommended and we would certainly come again. If I was to be honest, this short stay suited our teenage boys. Short walk to beach and all the good stuff in Torquay.

Thank you for your review, it is much appreciated. Glad we were able to accommodate you all in the Provence suite . The second twin room is not advertised on the booking websites and only bookable through our own website or by phoning us direct , it is ideal for teenagers or an older relative . Hope to see you...

The owners - Martyn and Elaine - ensured that the stay was an enjoyable one. Excellent views, a friendly atmosphere and a reasonably priced bar! The room itself was spacious and comfortable with excellent amenities as one would expect. We were given plenty of recommendations for activities and restaurants as well.

Great hospitality; on arrival we were greeted with homemade cake and tea, which was gorgeous, before we were shown to our suite. We had booked the Province Suite which suited our party size and needs. Lots of space, comfortable furnishings, cleaned to a high standard and all the rooms at the hotel are unique and individually themed. I can recommend... More
